We offer multiple sizes of thatch umbrellas constructed with the finest African Thatch Reed available. The African Thatch and umbrella frame are designed to withstand extreme wind conditions. The African reed used is made out of recyclable material, is 100% eco-friendly, and 99% waterproof. Its insulation factor produces temperatures 10 degrees cooler than typical canvas umbrellas. No maintenance is needed on our umbrella kits, but longevity depends on weathering conditions. Typically it can last up to 5 to 10 years. Instructions are included for an easy installation.
